One of the most exciting bass music acts to emerge in recent times, DeadExit are respected house DJ Sammy Porter and renowned selector, producer and broadcaster Crissy Criss. Set for even bigger things in 2015, the duo have already made a name for themselves with edgy remixes and unique original productions setting the bass music scene alight.
First set up as a bass music project for Crissy Criss to keep separate from his Drum and Bass production, DeadExit has flourished as a fresh, upcoming act in its own right. Joining forces with House minded Sammy Porter, DeadExit has quickly made the bass music scene take notice, with salvo after salvo of reworkings and original productions suddenly dominating dance floors and airwaves alike.
An unstoppable creative force, DeadExit are some of the busiest producers around, constantly releasing unofficial remixes for their favourite tracks. Reworking anything from Calvin Harris to Rudimental, or Chase and Status to Matrix & Futurebound, DeadExit have released a mass of free downloads, featuring their own unique spin.
What’s more, DeadExit’s unofficial remixes have led to official remix work from some of bass musics most important figures. With a discography including official remixes for the likes of Cookie Monsta, Dems and grime legend DDoubleE, DeadExit have been called on from some of the very best acts in the bass music scene. Elsewhere, the duo have given tunes from other genres the Dubstep treatment, putting their spin on tracks such as Drumsound & Bassline Smith’s ‘Atmosphere’ on NewState Recordings.
Not just confined to remixes, DeadExit’s original productions have also seen them release on a range of prestigious imprints, including Doctor P and Flux Pavillion’s Circus Recordings. First featured on the imprint’s annual album ‘Grand Central’ in 2014 with ‘Love Me ft Dems’, DeadExit have also earned original releases of their own on.
Their first solo release with Circus Records, ‘Soundboy Killer’ began a new chapter of the duo’s rise. The highly anticipated follow up to the track, ‘Snake’, was heavily supported by Benga – and even dropped by Funtcase in front of 14,000 Belgian ravers. After two months of radio and rave play, ‘Snake’ soon found its way on to the legendary Datsik’s label FirePower in July 2014, cracking the Beatport Dubstep Track Top100.
Thanks to an impressive amount of tunes in such as short space of time, DeadExit have regularly earned radio play and support from the likes of Skream & Benga, Target, Wideboys and Eddy Temple Morris. The duo were also a regular favourite of MistaJam’s prestigious Radio 1 and 1Xtra shows, regularly supplying mixes including the ‘Dubstep Download’ and ‘Daily Dose of Dubstep’ Mix.
With the support across the bass music scene and beyond, DeadExit are currently locked in the studio working on new EP’s and exciting remixes. 2015 looks to be the biggest year yet for a duo shaking up the bass music scene.
